Like replacing exterior siding, window replacement sounds like a job best reserved for when the weather is warm. Unfortunately, window problems can crop up at any season. What are you going to do when you run into issues in the dead of winter?
The good news is, it’s actually possible to get new windows installed even in winter, meaning you won’t have to wait for warmer weather to do a replacement project. You just have to make sure that you find the right window contractor to work with, the experts with whom you can entrust your home to.
Window Replacement in Winter: What to Expect
The biggest issue contractors face when doing siding repair or replacing windows in winter is the cold, so most of the changes they will be incorporating into their usual replacement process are geared toward preventing cold air from entering your home as much as possible. To this end, they can:
Remove one window at a time. This will keep the number of openings through which cold air can enter to a minimum.
Use floor-to-ceiling barriers. For larger openings, such as when bay or bow windows are being replaced, floor-to-ceiling barriers can be utilized to limit cold air entering the property.
Keep doors closed. Contractors may not be able to keep all of the cold air from entering an opening so closing doors to the room where the window replacement is being carried out will help prevent the cold from making its way through the rest of the home.
